Overview

Get an introduction to Information Technology in just 3 days on your accelerated CompTIA IT Fundamentals+ course. An ideal starting point if you’re looking to begin a career in the IT industry.

Your expert instructor will immerse you in ITF+ curriculum through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review learning technique. You’ll develop fundamental knowledge and skills required to identify and explain the basics of computing, IT infrastructure, application and software development, database fundamentals and security. You’ll get hands-on in this accelerated ITF+ course, learning the skills to:

  • Install software
  • Establish basic network connectivity
  • Identify computer components
  • Identify/prevent basic security risks
  • Explain troubleshooting theory and preventative maintenance of devices

As Firebrand is a CompTIA Platinum Partner, you'll benefit from the latest Official CompTIA course materials.

CompTIA ITF+ is the only pre-career certification that will help you understand your information technology abilities and decide if a career in IT is right for you.

After completing the ITF+ certification, if you're considering advancing into a career in IT, CompTIA A+ and Network+ are an ideal follow on.

Seven reasons why you should sit your ITF+ course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be ITF+ certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be ITF+ trained in record time
  2. Our ITF+ course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass ITF+ first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more ITF+. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn ITF+ faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying ITF+ with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 102,792 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study ITF+ courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
